It's an Uphill Climb to the Bottom (Walter Jackson)

14 JUNE 1966

Walter Jackson's soul burner 'It's an Uphill Climb to the Bottom' was having its own uphill climb to a a peak position of #88 on the Billboard Hot 100 during this month. This is, however, a much better song than the numbers suggest.

Jackson didn't have much success - this was one of his biggest hits - but he did have a great voice which was well used on lushly-produced Chicago soul ballads like this one.
